D.Rough and I knew a new brewery was opening up right by our house and we were too busy to go the first week they were open. We managed to get there after work one night and had a blast. They’ve got lots of new beers to try and sometimes they even have a food truck out front. Tonight’s food truck was Hot Indian Foods – one of our favorites!
The inside has a bunch of tables, both short and tall, and an overflow room that can be booked for occasions. The bar itself is pretty substantial and we really liked how they have a section at the end for people to order beer. It’s a very fast process that doesn’t have you shouldering yourself between people sitting at the bar and disturbing their night yelling over their heads. It’s really a smart idea. The beers are listed on chalkboard panels behind the bar, but they also have printed beer menus with descriptions of the beers and ABV levels. Plus, they have a great outside seating area with outdoor heaters and even a game of bags for people to play. Great idea!
We grabbed a flight of beers to see which ones we liked best. Firefly Rye Pal Ale, Migration Blonde Ale, Galactic Tide Nitro Rye Porter, and the newly tapped Scarecrow’s Friend Harvest Ale. D.Rough liked the Scarecrow’s Friend the best and I liked the Galactic Tide the best, but they were all pretty good. She even decided to get a full-sized Migration Blonde Ale since she thought it would go better with food. I went with the Galactic Tide.
We grabbed some fries from Hot Indian Food (it’s a mix of sweet potato and regular fries and heavily coated in Indian seasonings – delicious!). These things are a must.
It was a perfect end to a long work week, and we’ll be back very soon. Looking forward to it!
